STEINBACH FUNERAL HOME, 5 Chrysler Gate Steinbach, mb (204) 326-1351

Aug. 5, 1949 - Jan. 23, 2005

Peacefully at the Eagle Ridge Hospital in Port Moody, B.C., Eleanor, dearly beloved wife of Glen Derksen, went home to be with the Lord, after a lengthy battle, diagnosed later as cancer, to a place where the roses never fade.

Eleanor was married to Brian Weiss in 1970. In that love, their daughters Madrece, Melody (Frank), Melissa and Meredith were born. Eleanor was blessed with another great man, her second husband, Glen Derksen. They cherished the love they had for one another for 20 years.

Five grandchildren were her pride and joy: Jasmine, Dustyn,

Barett, Benjamin, and Harmony. Her loving mother, Freda Janz; and her two treasured brothers, Tim and Loren (Caroline) Janz; sisters-in-law Loretta and Sharon (Barry) are still our blessings here on earth.

Eleanor was predeceased by her dear dad, Benjamin Janz, in 1992, and two brothers, Reginald (2000) and Royden (1978), all of whom she treasured.

Surrounded by her lovely family, she left her body and her soul, and took flight to a land where there is no night, no tears, and no more pain. There was great rejoicing in Heaven to meet her loved ones, but most of all, Jesus. What a day that will be, when we will all be reunited.

February 8, 1907 - February 6, 2005

On Sunday, Feb.6, 2005 at 12:14 p.m. at Rest Haven Nursing Home in Steinbach,MB, with her children there to celebrate her 98th birthday , Mom, Agatha Broesky Funk, quietly responded to her Savior's call to come home. Mom was the last of the John and Agatha Broesky family and got to the highest age.

She was preceded by her husband Abraham, two sons Jacob and Cornelius, one daughter-in-law Helen Ginter Funk, one granddaughter Dianna Funk Barkman and one great- grandson Corey Friesen.

She leaves to mourn her passing three daughters: Agatha (Peter) Unrau of Grunthal,MB., Katherine (Otto) Winkler of Mitchell, MB, Susan (Gary) Cullum of Cranbrook, BC; eight sons: Abe of Winnipeg,MB, John (Anne) of Steinbach, William (Nettie) of Blumenort,MB, daughter-in-law Edith, Peter (Anne) of Steinbach, Herman (Helena) of Sprague,MB, Jim (Judith) of Steinbach, David (Marlene) of Pansy,MB, Henry (Jessie) of Red Deer, AB, 62 grandchildren, 152 great-grandchildren and 20 great-great grandchildren. Including all the in-laws of children and grandchildren, her following would be well over 300.

Mom was born February 8, 1907 in Didsbury, AB and sometime thereafter her family moved to Grunthal. She was baptized in June 1924 at the Grunthal Chortitzer Church.

She met Dad at a youth gathering; they were married on July 26, 1925 and had a good life together for 64 years and nine months.

Life on the farm was not always easy, but they always managed to get by. As children arrived there was also the responsibility to bring them up in the fear and admonition of God, which was not easy with the daily pressures of farm life. Mom loved her children and was very much concerned with their spiritual development - especially during their teenage years. In her quiet and unassuming manner she was more of a witness by example than by words. Even in her last years living at Rest Haven, Mom always prayed for every one of her children. We are so thankful for her example of love and forgiveness. Mom we can see you meeting our Saviour first of all, but by now you have met Dad again, and Jacob and Corney and all who have gone on before. We can see you without pain, and walking straight and upright. We are rejoicing with you and can hardly wait to meet you up there.

The funeral service will be held on Thursday, Feb.10 at 2 p.m. at the Chortitzer Mennonite Church, 479 Hanover St., Steinbach with interment at Heritage Cemetery.
